Listener comments!

  9:11am Kosta:

Hey Liz, wondering if you'll be following Fantastic Plastic machine with some early POLYSICS?
  9:13am Liz B.:

Good idea, Kosta! I can't grab it now, but I'll try to toss in some Polysics a bit later in the show.
  9:18am Kosta:

Yeah! battlebath is pretty amazing sound in the meantime!
  9:32am sabrina:

hiya liz, i wanna be the first listener to wish you a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and all the best.
  9:33am kosta:

more vital sounds from damo - still rules!
  9:34am lonnie:

do you have any info on damo's "network"? he's collaborated with so many folks over the years it's hard to keep track of. the cul de sac collab is still my favorite
  9:34am ratbone:

musta bin listnin on way in,eh? never heardo this guy but am gonna find out more..thanks guys for the heads up
  9:39am sabrina:

btw liz, have you got any holiday plans?
  9:39am kosta:

A good place fpr quick referencing
  9:40am Wes:

Happy Festivus, sabrina
  9:41am Liz B.:

Damo's Network is Mandjau Fati, Thomas Hopf, Michael Karoli, and Alex Schonert, and the tune was recorded live in Seattle in 1998.
  9:42am Parq:

Liz, that was a great unintentional (or do I underestimate you?) holiday reference -- "A Child's Christmas in a Wales Recording Studio".
  9:44am lonnie:

thanks for the tip kosta - i'm always looking for something like that covering the more obscure - and thanks for taking the time out of your busy morning for the info liz.
  9:49am Kosta:

No worries - im just happy to be listening to the greatest radio show on this earthly earth! Liz B, airwave supremo!
  9:50am Liz B.:

Purely unintentional. In fact, I have, like, no earthly idea what you are talking about, Parq.
  10:05am Steev:

Hi, Liz: Did I hear right--there's going to be an interview with Galt MacDermot? Could you tell me when? (Sorry for not paying attention, but sometimes work gets in the way.)
  10:06am Liz B.:

Steev, Michael Shelley will be chatting with Galt MacDermott this Saturday, December 15th, 10am - 1pm.
  10:23am Death to Math:

Love your show Liz. These math questions are too hard for me.
  10:30am Kosta:

eroc/tivol back to back was a nice touch
  10:33am Liz B.:

Thanks for the holiday wishes, I'll be spending the solstice sacrificing babies to pagan deities, and then for x-mas I'll bring my sleeping bag and camp out at Macy's so that I have front row seats to Gift Exchange Battle 07.
  10:41am Wes:

Speaking of pagan deities, is "the grove" the big camp in northern cali where all the nation's politicians, corporate types, and media moguls gather to get wasted and worship molech? Or...just the "oak trees" in general? Gather round ye olde oak trees and hold hands yadda yadda yay...
  11:03am Wes:

Just saw water-cooler girl....man is she looking sweet today. Glad she came by to see me, just the pick me up I needed. Could give a guy a reason to live on in this crazy world..
  11:05am kosta:

speaking of crazy worlds, i was just discussing that with my colleagues - i think i'll wait until im burnt out then go and meditate somewhere warm - thus avoiding this crazy world!
  11:06am Parq:

Still in yr corner, W.
  11:10am Wes:

Sounds like the daily routine, kosta...but I know what you mean. A boat and a map, because it's hard to find a beach that isn't patrolled by someone with a badge looking to make a buck (or worse)
  11:14am Wes:

Thanks Parq. Good things are in store come January.
  11:20am kosta:

Hey Liz, thanks for POLYSICS!!!!
  11:20am Chuck:

Lovin' your show from Portland, Oregon
  11:25am gerardo:

hi, liz, (hi wes, hi everyone)

enjoying the show, rockin' it up - and glad to see Congreso's Grabación 1963 on the playlist!

(have some new stuff coming soon ;) )
  11:34am ?:


cool, liz!

there's something even cooler than listening to this song - watching peña perfoming it. He just stands and delivers this rant, almost motionless. And the vocals fades are not fades really - he just moves his head to the left, to the right, and across!

(btw, is water cooler girl around, wes?)
  11:35am gerardo:

sorry, missed writing my name again ;)
  11:40am Mark Williams:

no luck finding any info on this Dinamite label so far. Got me a clue? This track is infectious.
  11:40am north guinea hills:

i love that name, water cooler girl, if she only had some sort of super powers.....
  11:42am Liz B.:

Mark, my bad, it's actually Dinamyte (try dinamyte.com)!
  11:46am gerardo:

"water cooler girl"...

sounds like a song title ... maybe ir's time to write one - she may have super powers in it ;)

(glad you played cynthia's piece, liz - sounded great. this stimulates me even more to look for new stuff)
  11:46am Wes:

She has the power to make an otherwise articulate orator become a bumbling fool but I'm workin on that
  11:47am north guinea hills:

so wes, what's her super hero costume?
  11:48am gerardo:

right, wes

that's a super power they sure have ;) - lol
  11:49am Wes:

Yes she's still around Gerardo...talked to her TWICE so far today. All is well. Going to let the 'holidays' pass and then get back on that mission in January. Thanks :)
  11:53am north guinea hills:

thanks for playing charles cohen. he's a standup gentleman. we had a party a few years ago where he was supposed to play in brooklyn and he drove from philly in a blizzard for a show that would only pay maybe $20 and a few beers. awesome dedication.
  11:54am Wes:

ngh...all black leather tights, not unlike catwoman, but with more of a biker edge. I'm only imagining of course, her costume is mostt days is a black business suit, high heels, hair pulled back.
  11:57am north guinea hills:

wes,..... nice.....
  11:57am Archmo:

is that transition music a hook from petula clark?
  11:57am gerardo:

great, wes - and a nice strategy that one you mentioned - holidays give time to rest and prepare speeches and cues to avoid bumbling

btw, we have clothes, we have s super power... the song is writing by itself...

(rude mechanical orchestra is awesome, liz! - never heard them before... i guess the song is pronounced / koseetché/ )
  11:59am Sean Daily:

Not even close to first comment! Woo hoo!
  7:12pm damova:

gerardo: the RMO song is pronounced KO shee tseh
  7:55pm damova:

Kosice is a city in Slovakia
  7:51pm gerardo:

thanks very much, damova. nothing compares to learning day by day ;)
  1:49pm damova:

gerardo: you are so right.
  11:10am cynthia shuffer:

Hi Liz!
well, i`m in your list.
